|Indeed, the building fell downward as a single unit in less than seven seconds, which is essentially the speed of "free fall". A collapse at this speed means that no part of the structure met any resistance on the way down As one expert commented, it would require that every single support structure in the building would have to fail at the same moment.
In fact the collapse was spectacular, the kind of event that people would drive great distances to witness. Yet in the midst of the day's horror it went almost unremarked.
You can watch or download three short film clips that show the collapse of Building Seven, scenes that were essentially captured by accident since no one was really interested in that particular building at the time.
They appear in different formats at various locations around the web. All three are available as MPEG files at this site
"In February of 2002 Silverstein Properties won $861 million from Industrial Risk Insurers to rebuild on the site of WTC 7. Silverstein Properties' estimated investment in WTC 7 was $386 million. So: This building's collapse resulted in a profit of about $500 million!"
However, the government's position on anything related to the tragedy was quickly solidifying into a stone wall: 9-11 in its entirety was an open and shut case - and no further research, investigation, or analyses was necessary. By the end of May, every scrap of potential physical evidence has been seized and carted away, either to be destroyed outright, buried in a landfill, or in the case of structural steel -- shipped out of the country."The specifics of the fires in WTC 7 and how they caused the building to collapse remain unknown..."
FEMA concluded the analysis by stating the obvious,
"Although the total diesel fuel on the premises contained massive potential energy, the best hypothesis has only a low probability of occurrence. Further research, investigation, and analyses are needed to resolve this issue."
|In retrospect this is not surprising. It is difficult today to find any 9-11 "fact" offered by the Bush Administration that has the ability to withstand close scrutiny. In general they show either basic flaws in reasoning, a complete lack of corroborating evidence, or the familiar syndrome in which one question simply leads to more questions that the government refuses to acknowledge, let alone answer.
The initial demands for better explanations are somewhat muted. Many who have the credentials to speak out convincingly are reluctant to get involved in an unofficial non-academic forum. Others are pragmatic. Anyone capable of killing thousands of people for a propaganda stunt is certainly capable of killing a single person who gets in their way. And as time goes on, incidents of administrative and police harassment of persons who speak out within their community will become common, essentially a sign of the times.

SILVERSTEIN: I remember getting a call from the fire department commander - telling me that - they were not sure they were gonna be able (to) contain the fire. I said "you know we've had such terrible loss of life - maybe the smartest thing to do is - is pull it." Ahhh - and they made that decision to pull. (??) And we watched the building collapse.

TOPIC: Destruction of Building Seven on 9-11
In this incredible sound clip Larry Silverstein, owner of the three buildings that collapsed on Sept. 11th, admits that Building Seven was brought down by explosives. He then claims that it was the New York City Fire Department that dynamited the building, and not Silverstein himself.
Listen to the full sound segment, and then this key speech reversal:
Forward phrase: "Maybe the smartest thing to do is, is pull it."
Reversed: "SO WHITNEY SAW 'EM SHOOT IT"

Your sin prompts your mouth;
you adopt the tongue of the crafty.
Your own mouth condemns you, not mine;
your own lips testify against you.

|There's not much chance that Silverstein had the building wired up with no particular date in mind for Pushing The Button.  Unless you want to think Larry was just going to drop his building on the sidewalk in the middle of an ordinary work day, with no permits or anything, we have to accept that the demolition was always intended to take place in the midst of the attack, when it could be blamed on Arab madmen.|
How is Larry going to determine a good time to blow the building?  By this, I mean a time when the collapse of a 47 story skyscraper, without a scratch on it, will go virtually unnoticed.  When the fire department begins putting out the fires? Obviously, there would never be a time in which the fall of Building Seven would go unremarked, unless the twin towers violated all the rules incorporated into their design and collapsed first.  It's the only conceivable situation in which the demolition of Building Seven could be accomplished without a near certainty of going to jail.
So Osama had to tell Larry not only the date of the attack, but in order to assure Larry that he could actually push the big red button and get away with a 500 million dollar insurance fraud, he had to guarantee that the World Trade Center Towers would actually fall.  Otherwise it simply wouldn't have worked.
